South of Broad is one of downtown Charleston’s most coveted neighborhoods. WIth beautifully preserved homes, inviting parks, colorful private gardens, eclectic local shops, savory restaurants and a vibrant community, it is no wonder that this unique neighborhood is one of the most sought after places to call home.
Our featured listing at 135 Broad Street is located in the heart of this thriving neighborhood–within walking distance of restaurants along Broad and East Bay Streets, local shops, art galleries, White Point Gardens and more. The historic home was built in 1870 and has been carefully renovated by the current owners. It still stands as a duplex–with a two bedroom, one and half bath unit on the first floor and a two bedroom, two bath unit on the second floor. A keyless door opens into a small foyer with secured and separate entrances to both units.
First Floor Unit
The first floor unit has great natural light along with multiple points of access to the covered porch running alongside the home. The formal living room and formal dining room are interconnected to create an open flow with nice details including tall ceilings, gas fireplaces, preserved original hardwood floors, ceiling friezes and French doors opening to the porch. The kitchen is located off of the formal dining room and has been updated with granite counters, stainless appliances and cherry cabinetry. The master bedroom is located in the back of the home and it has a separate sitting room with a gas fireplace and built-in desk. A full hallway bath, with a subway tiled shower, connects to the master bedroom and there is also a powder room under the stairs. The second bedroom is well-sized with access to the porch.
Second Floor Unit
The home’s second floor has an identical footprint to the first floor but it has been rearranged to make the most of the space. A large living room, with a gas fireplace, transitions into the spacious kitchen which is much larger than the first floor kitchen. Granite counters, white custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bar breathe life into this light-filled space. The master bedroom is the same size as the one on the first floor but the office has been turned into a private en suite bath with a fireplace, dual pedestal sinks and a subway tiled tub/shower. The guest bedroom faces Broad Street and it too has an en suite bath.
In addition to the interior features of the home, another highlight is the abundance of off-street parking. A surface lot in the back of the property can accommodate up to six cars and there is also a small bluestone dining patio to be enjoyed.
